Strontium isotope ratio

strontium isotope ratio

ALS Scandinavia offers lead isotope ratio of 87Sr and 86Sr. Analysis of strontium isotope ratios is useful in a variety of fields including:

  • Provenance studies
  • Geology
  • Geochronology
  • Forensics

The analysis of strontium (Sr) isotopes can be carried out by two techniques, ICP-SFMS (high resolution ICP-MS) and MC-ICP-SFMS (multicollector ICP-SFMS). ALS Scandinavia has developed a matrix separation method that is applied on prior to analysis for significantly improved measurement uncertainty. Please read more about our laboratory and our analytical methods at ICP laboratory and analytical methods.

Isotope Research

We conduct our isotope research in close co-operation with several external institutions, particularly the Divisions of Applied Geology and Chemistry at Luleå University of Technology. The research has resulted in a number of publications in the scientific literature. For more information please see isotope research.
